The Nanny: The Complete Series There are a few new releases this week that you won't want to miss. Check out these hot titles: The Nanny: The Complete Series [review] - One of the classic sitcoms of the ‘90s, this show remained entertaining until the end and is compulsively re-watchable; Island of Death [review] - for discerning sleaze enthusiasts this is exploitation film-making at its finest; and Erik the Viking [review] - Terry Jones's film is a pleasantly cracked adventure picture, led by a charmingly goofy Tim Robbins and a crew of hard-working British comic character actors. Other reviews of note include: Kings of the Sun [review], River of Death [review], and Revenge of the Ninja [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Goodfellas: 25th Anniversary Edition Our reviewers have been busy this week, filling the DVD Talk Review Database more great entries. Some new reviews of note include: Goodfellas: 25th Anniversary Edition - this epic tale of power, pulp, and paranoia still packs a punch and remains one of director Martin Scorsese's greatest works; Limelight: Criterion Collection -a testament to Charlie Chaplin's clarity of vision as both a director and actor that he takes what could have just been a self-serving wallow in the mind of a merry-maker and transforms it into a truly touching, resonant story; and Wet Hot American Summer - a film that's got a silly sense of humor and a healthy cult following... you'll enjoy the highly-quotable summertime shenanigans in this film. Other recent reviews include: Frankenstein's Hungry Dead, Thank Your Lucky Stars, and An Eye for an Eye.  Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

DVD Talk Interview:  Ben Model Over the last couple of years Undercrank Productions has released some excellent and exceedingly rare silent movies on DVD. DVD Talk's John Sinnott recently had a chance to talk with Ben Model is the driving force behind Undercrank who not only produces the discs, but also scores and provides musical accompaniment to the films. He talks about how some of these movies came to be preserved outside of film archives, the difference between scoring shorts and features, and what we can expect to see from Undercrank in the future. Read all this and more in this exclusive interview.

Fireball XL5: The Complete Series More TV shows have made their way on to DVD and Blu-ray, and DVD Talk has got them covered. Check out our reviews of the newest TV releases including: Fireball XL5: The Complete Series - this show still charms thanks to its simple-yet-nicely designed production and that velvety, strangely ethereal black and white world it creates; Science Fiction Theatre: The Complete Series - the first time all 78 episodes have been made available on DVD... this largely forgotten 50's SF show features real science along with high-tech gadgetry and concepts; and Parenthood: The Complete Series - a reliably well-written show with solid performances, strong chemistry between cast members, and the good sense to treat most of its serious issues in a mature, reasoned manner. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Mom's Day Away, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues: The Complete Second Season, and Z Nation: The Complete First Season.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Jamaica Inn This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Jamaica Inn - a pristine copy of a vintage Hitchcock film about a gang of swarthy Cornwall pirates that wreck cargo ships and murder their crews for profit; Thank Your Lucky Stars - Warner's first all-star wartime ode to the troops is a comedy variety spectacular that gathers every name actor on the payroll; and Hombre - Martin Ritt directs and Paul Newman stars in an impressive adaptation of a book by Elmore Leonard, a western tale that seems a political update of Stagecoach. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.

Leviathan Some pretty cool discs are being released this week. Check out these new titles: Leviathan [review] - Andrey Zvyagintsev's haunting and spellbinding film is a somber tale built on hopelessness and palpable anger towards the establishment; It! The Terror from Beyond Space [review] - a sharply written, well-crafted collision of horror and science fiction and this Blu-ray release presents one of the 50's most extraordinary genre efforts in its theatrical aspect ratio for the first time; and Extremities [review] - a tense morality play in which Farah Fawcett plays a sexual assault victim that turns the tables on her attacker. Other reviews of note include: American Sniper [review], Cymbeline [review], and Flawless [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.
